Ohhh, Andrew Johnson

Magnet #459 - Andrew Johnson (1865-1869)

So, when I first started this blog, I figured I had enough magnets to last me a year to two years. Then I realized that I was inheriting and buying more and more magnets. And that still didn't stop me from buying a complete Presidents of the United States magnet set a couple of weeks ago. Oiy.

Now, like I do with the Kings and Queens of England, I'll be inserting these guys in as "This Day in History" deems necessary, or you know, whenever.

Today's fact, is that today in 1868, Andrew Johnson, our 17th president, was acquitted of impeachment charges - the Senate couldn't get the one vote needed for a majority. To learn more about his impeachment (and more), go here, because I'd like to avoid dredging up this long ago past here.

Nope. What I'm trying to figure out, is how Johnson was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, and I haven't been to his birthplace. Hmph.
Pin It!

Hee! I find it hysterical that you bought a set of POTUS magnets. I'm ecstatic that the shelf life of this blog is growing.

Dude. If you can believe it, I refrained from buying the First Ladies of the United States set. :-)

I get him and Andrew Jackson confused.
